Chile

Juan Cordova played the full 90 minutes at RB for Huachipato in a 1-1 tie with Palestino tonight.  Also picked up a yellow card.

It looks like he has played in 6 of the club's past 8 games since the beginning of August.  He started in 5 of those 6 and went the full 90 in 4 of those 6 games.  Transfermarkt has him listed playing both RB & RW for a few games each.

Forgot all about him, tbh. I wonder if Herdman did too.

Honestly, cannot blame Herdman on this one.  Unfortunately for Cordova, our outside backs have become much stronger.  He's very versatile in that he can play both sides and as a back and as a winger.  For Canada, he is not strong enough to make the squad as an outright winger.  And in our current formation, he cannot play as a LCB or RCB which leaves him only as a wingback role.  Laryea, Davies Tajon & Adekugbe are all ahead of him at the wingback role.  Even ZBG, Bassong & Gutierrez (when healthy) are probably ahead of him as well.  Bassong is more verstalile too as he can play as an outside CB, even ZBG could probably slide into that role if we needed to.  Would still love to see him in some friendlies in the future.

Dario Zanatta started for Raith Rovers vs Celtic in the quarters of the Scottish League Cup on Thursday (old news I know:). Recieved his second yellow in the 59’ while already down 3-0. Game ends with the same scoreline. Highlights and some praise for Dario's recent form (aside from this game lol):

Zanatta with his 4th goal this year in 6 matches in a 3-2 win against Partick Thistle. Sounds like he won the PK which resulted in Raith's second goal and his corner ended up being knocked in for the third. Nice turnaround from the red against Celtic. Calling him a "wizard" might be a little much though...
